I LOVE INDEPENDENCE DAY AND ALL THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE.  I love America and enjoy Americana decor.  Therefore, this patriotic decor item I made is just what I need for these next couple of weeks!!

 Two decorated flower vases with flags in them.  I am going to purchase some red, white and blue carnations to go inside them as we get closer to Independence day.  The one on the left with the yellow star says "FOR YOU".  I am giving it away at my card class tonight.  I didn't like how much the vase shows on that one because it is a bit short, so I made a taller one on the right.

 Here is the first one I made, a bit short for the vase.  I thought I could find a shorter vase, but have not been able to locate one.  I think with flowers and maybe even some greenery it will be fine though, don't you think?

 The shreds of blue paper are just to fill in a bit until I purchase the carnations.

This is the second one I made and it is the full 8 1/2" width of paper in height.  You just score every 1/2" and then fold them in and out to make a star.  The hardest part is adhering a star at the bottom to keep its shape. You stamp however you want to make it look patriotic.  I chose to make the vase covers look like flags themselves.

Hope you enjoyed my patriotic decor.  Thanks for stopping by.
Here's to the red, white and blue!!
